Aren't the cars being tested by the factory drivers still pre-production pieces?

A top quality company like Team Losi is not going to release crap like you mentioned above. This car is stlll pre production. I DON'T BELEVE A SINGLE WORD YOU SAY. I have had people try to tell me the battery tray falls off, I have had alot of people try to tell me things. So i really don't beleve a signle word you say. So go find another car to bash on.

diff pully looks like plastic in every JRXS I have held?? so do the outdrives... there is an aluminum coupler type piece in the center of it... but it apears to weigh nothing..

arent the outdrives on the xray aluminum?

ya know??

They were at my track testing for 4 days before cleveland.. I was also there the whole time. I saw a lot of arms break, but that is to be expected when going from 10'-12' lanes down to 8' lanes, and at that speed...

i dont think i heard of anyone wearing out cvd's... and the cars i looked at had the new ones...

The battery tray will only fall off if you don't do the screws right. Looking also at the piece itself, I could see where the small tabs on the tray could brake off. But only if the person is being careless.
Pre prduction cars. I recall where Masami had some pulleys made for his Dogfighter/Works car at one Worlds.. They were aluminum also. Production parts were nylon/plastic. So I wouldn't cash in anything yet on diff materials or trans weight. Also sometimes accuracy, smoothness, and balance can greatly offset weight. especially when you may be talking an ounce, if that, of difference..
Aren't tracks also rougher in England compaired to the US? You want an indestructable car? Don't get a high speed racer. Get a 9.6 V Tyco.

Besides, I thought the whole idea is to adapt to the cars differences, not drive it the same as the other cars. The more adjustments the better for some, nightmare for others. Just because it's new doesn't mean it's best for you. Yes it's a big design change. Like it or not. Losi will have done it's homework well by the time it is out. They wouldn't be so big sellers in the hobby if they didn't.
